The Day's Events
SPEND A DAY TOGETHER IN NATURE
Chester County, Pennsylvania is known for its natural beauty. Join me (Hilary) and my mother (Nancy) in this historic stone home in Coatesville for a day long mother-daughter experience. Every detail is carefully curated with your enjoyment and growth in mind. After the year we've had, we could all use the healing elements of nature. Yoga on the back deck, creating art in the garden, enjoying a delicious dinner in the cool evening air all while being surrounded by the healing sights and sounds of nature.
ENJOY DELICIOUS MEALS THAT NURTURE YOUR BODY AND SOUL
Nancy (aka Hilary's Mama) is a culinary genius. A retired cooking school owner who created seasonal experiences for her students through her menu and table settings. She has developed a special menu for you to enjoy throughout the day. Keeping in mind picky eaters and dietary restrictions because delicious does not equal fancy. Spend time in the kitchen learning from this Midwestern woman who is Barefoot Contessa meets Martha Stewart. Mothers and daughters will learn a new seasonal menu that they can prepare together over and over this summer. Then we will all enjoy this delicious meal together as we reflect on our day.
UNDERSTANDING & BONDING
Mothers and daughters attend three workshops with their peers to learn how to understand where the other is coming from. You will connect with each other and make new friends (who totally get you). Keep a mother-daughter journal between you throughout the day to share what you're learning. Get creative with an art project to weave your past and future together. Learn life changing tools that you will immediately open your eyes and benefit you for years to come. Improve the way you relate, listen and understand to your daughter. Leave feeling loved and hopeful for the future.
ARE YOU READY TO FEEL CLOSER AND ATTUNED WITH YOUR DAUGHTER?
A therapist for teen girls and coach for mothers and daughters with over thirteen years of experience & training. In a culture that tells us to accept the conflict between mothers and daughters, I encourage mothers to challenge this through nurturing, love and understanding. With two mother-daughter relationships of my own I found it critical to learn how to break the patterns that didn't serve us and create a new way of relating with both my mother and daughter, where we all felt loved and understood.
I grew up watching my mother write her own recipes, design beautiful experiences and teach women how to feel confident in the kitchen. She has a knack for turning everyday occasions into special ones. She raised three daughters to become feminists and women who are passionate about helping others.With over forty years of entertaining and culinary expertise, Nancy joins us to teach mothers and daughters how to bond over these special moments at home in every season.
A teacher, an art director and Mom to two wonderful young women, based in California. While her daughters were young, she nurtured a connection with them, always staying close to what was happening in their worlds. All of these titles helped her form The Mother Daughter Art Project, a creative subscription box to bring mothers and daughters closer through creativity, connection, and positive communication. Amy will curate and guide an art project with our mothers and daughters.
